4. “Local Governments and Solid Waste Management” by Godfrey Barigye

“Local Governments and Solid Waste Management” Book Review: This book focuses on how the provision of waste disposal must continue to be improved. It includes theoretical debates in important questions relating to solid waste management including “The public choice theory” that embraces democratic administration through governance giving the people what they want. The readers get to know how the actions of the government should be consistent with the values embraced in the solid waste management and the interests of the citizens in the local governments. At last it discusses how Solid, management and Local Governments are inseparable in modern management approaches. The book is useful for those who want to gain a practical understanding of how the local governments and solid waste management are interlinked.

5. “Computer Integrated Experimentation (Environmental and Energetics Series)” by Edward Magrab

“To Evaluate the Current Solid Waste Issues in Hong Kong’s Housing Process” Book Review: This book proposes five approaches to evaluate the most sustainable strategy for efficient solid waste disposal in Hong Kong. These include a food waste recycling program, an MSW charging scheme, the implementation of incineration plants (i.e., waste to energy). The other two are black soldier fly bioconversion and a waste trading scheme; and black soldier fly bioconversion and a hybrid anaerobic digestion system. It also includes a detailed demonstration of each approach, particularly focusing on the benefits, limitations and implementation of each in the case of Hong Kong. The book is useful for students ,researchers and environmentalists.
